Memorable family trip

We recently had this private tour to Cai Be and Tan Phong and it was top-notch. We're able to learn so much about the local life in the Mekong Delta.

We visit the floating market, try handmade candy, and then explore Tan Phong Islet. We enjoyed fresh fruits and had a very nice meal. We're so thankful for this experience!!
